The Heart


directed by Kon Ichikawa
Japan, 1955
  • 120


Brimful with brooding psychological torment, Kokoro is vintage Kon Ichikawa. Based on a novel by Natsume Soseki, the director foregrounds its themes of individual isolation and social estrangement, most notably in a central protagonist stricken by existential demons and stranded by changing times.
